of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the president keep promising to raise everyone's taxes, which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deploy it because they have so much uncertainty. >> i am not certain that the president is going to raise their once taxes. but you know what the growth rate was -- do a deal with the gdp growth rate was at the e
.s. recognition of statehood. that is something obama has not received enough credit for. within a year, we have both a jewish congresspersons, one republican and one democrat saying opposite things. your party would do better in the white house for israel. >> i certainly believe so. it is a very critical period. small things can mean an awful lot when the president has not been to israel, snubs the prime minister, has made outrageous claims. these have consequences. i think some of the arab states right now -- these are big blunders. >> you mean the book, thldest of the arab states? >> that daylight between israel and the united states. this is an administration of a great deal of rhetoric. let's look to the actions. >> that is an interesting point, congressman. there are people that say, it doesn't matter if there are nice photo ops. but does it matter what president obama is eating in jerusalem? >> it does matter. >> would you measure military support with the diplomatic aid? he may not love is real. >> i am not asking obama if he loves it, if he believes it is in the best interests of the un
is that president obama and congressman ryan have almost the exact same proposal for the next ten years, save $1 trillion from medicare, not by cutting benefits or raising costs to elderly, but reducing payments to hospitals and other kind of providers. interestingly those two are in the same place on the next two years. romney for whatever set of reasons says he doesn't want to do anything in the next ten years, which means that $1 trillion that his vice presidential running mate would save he does not want to save. he's in a different place on the next ten years. so let's go to the period after that. what's the long-term plan that each of these guys has for cost containment. again, very interestingly, president obama congressman ryan want to achieve exactly the same level of medicare spending over the definite future. they want to increase by gdp plus 1.5%. they would get there different ways. president obama would get there by efficiencies, new methods. ryan would get there by having private competition. in terms of the actual dollars, it's the same. romney, again, we can ask why, does not wa
an endorsement of obama care in the process. governor romney is one of the great stories over the last two years that he's been running. at bottom, at heart, he's proud of the law. he tried to find a way in the primaries to be for his own law and not give that up and say i'm proud of what we did in massachusetts. he knew he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to be against obama care. he found himself in a ridiculous position of saying i love my own law but it's not good law for the rest of the country even though i said that in an op-ed two years ago. i claimed that to get through the republican primaries. it's an impossible straddle and one that maybe he had to do in order to get through the primary electorate now in this ridiculous position of having to -- he should be proud of the law. a law he is proud of. he hasn't been able to embrace because of the complicated primary dynamics. this is where he should have been all along. it's hard to see it giving him political advantage it might have under other circumstances. >> it shows political weaknesses on mitt romney's part. the first is w
a speed of 768 miles an hour. the 43-year-old baumgartner completed his final test jump back in july. we'll let you know how it goes. arthel: okay. back to the campaign trail, right now one theme of president obama's re-election bid is equal pay for equal work. an assertion by the president and democrats that women earn about 77 cents for every dollar that men earn. but analysts raised questions about this hot button issue. chief national correspondent jim angle is live in washington. all right, jim, so what's the big deal? [laughter] >> reporter: well, arthel, the key assertion, as you say, is that women only make 77 cents for every dollar that men make. that is in obama ads and in his own statements. listen. >> president obama knows that women being paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men isn't just unfair, it hurts families. >> if you do the same work as a man, you ought to be paid the same wage as a man. [applause] >> reporter: now, of course, the problem is that's not true. the assertion that it's equal work for equal pay -- equal pay for equal work. the census da
and it will limit the upside for next year. >> is there a point at which you see obama in the polls and you say actually now i believe that we are going to get the tax hikes and the market should fall? there must be a watershed quite soon as we head towards particularly what happens in the house and the senate. >> our focus has been on the senate. we think that's what's going to mostly influence the outcome. i hope there's appetite to see the rates low. i don't see a benefit from raising them. i would call a coin toss on the senate outcome. but wiser minds will see the wisdom of helping the fed in its efforts to stimulate asset prices by not onerously raising taxes on the most important asset class other than homes. >> have you actually calculated a number? you said it would give back some of the rally. but is there a number or a percentage? >> 12-month price target is 1,500. we've written in our research that 1,600 would be a reasonable 2013 end. i need to see an acceleration in global growth. >> contingent on both, not just the tax issue? >> both. somewhere between 1,500 and 1,600. >> david,
tuesday, president obama took a tougher than usual election-season line against iran. the cold reality is, that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. essentially saying actions speak louder than words. your reaction? >> i think that actions do speak louder than words. and if you look at the record of the president, he has led the international community in posing the most crippling sanctions ever imposed on any country. he has said that all options are on the table. i can tell you from my time in the pentagon that option is very real. it is important that we give diplomacy time to work. we still do have time. the president has been clear and consistently clear in his determination to absolutely prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. there's no doubt about that whatsoever. >> but the leader of israel benjamin netanyahu doesn't say we've been very clear. he keeps calling us to lay out a deliberate red line here. there are people here in this world, key allies, that do
in europe are overblown. he thinks europe could be break even within about three years. moving on, he talked about cigna. he said that hmos are generally a beaten down sector, but that cigna is in a much better position than competitors. less vulnerable to the issues of obama care than others. this might have surprised people. he said chipotle is under a major threat from talk woe bell. 4,000 consumers talked about how they liked taco bell and the recent menu rolled out. einhorn thinks this could pose a competitive problem for chipolte in the years to come. >> just to be clear, he did not say he was going long yum, did he? >> good question. someone did ask him that in the follow-up, and he said, look, i like what's going on at yum, but i'm a little nervous about two things and i'm sure there were others. kfc in china he thinks has issues and imt not convinced there's anything good going on at pizza hut. for those reasons he's on the sidelines. he thinks taco bell is in a great competitive spot. >> kate kelly join you go us from the value investing congress. when we come back, he's the man re
